Status Hearing Set for Knox Teacher Accused of Sexual Misconduct

Todd Boldry

There have been no major developments in the case against a former Knox High School teacher accused of fathering a child with a former student. The Knox Community School Board initially suspended Boldry with pay on Aug. 24 and has since been suspended without pay.  Superintendent A.J. Gappa said earlier that substitute teachers will fill the position until the outcome of the investigation is determined.

Boldry was arrested Friday, Aug. 24, 2012 at the Knox Middle School on charges of Child Seduction and Official Misconduct as Class D Felonies. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him in Starke Circuit Court.

A plea agreement deadline expired on Jan. 17, and officials at the Starke Circuit Court have reported that no plea agreement has been filed nor have they heard of any extension of that deadline. A status hearing for the case is set for March 1 at 9 a.m.

Boldry has retained the counsel of Jim Brugh, a Logansport attorney.
